NileGuide Expert tip:
Prepare for fun and enjoy the escape from California's summer heat.
In the cool high country of Yosemite is the hard-to-get-into Tuolumne Meadows Campground. Each July the non-profit Yosemite Conservancy hosts two long-weekend family camps in this gorgeous mountain setting. Naturalists guide activities for kids and adults, provide evening programs by the campfire, and facilitate a great social bonding experience. All the cooking and dishwashing is done for you; families just need to bring their tents and camping gear. These fun sessions have become a great way for parents to start their kids on building a lifelong connection to nature -while building a strong family with this kind of shared experience.
